A surface divided into two horizontal bands
reads as a landscape; what if
there are three?

Taken on a journey while documenting the temporary shoreline of an esker home to Vuosaari, the work Solid Water Ways explores temporary shapes and forms. The seascape between the ever-changing islands - where life has expanded since the ice began to disappear - switches between becoming a main surface to opening up space for the other temporary surface which lies underneath, as the surrounding area of the esker is one of the few places in the world where land is still rising. This work reflects on the activity of entering and claiming matter, and gaining temporary access, where the constant metamorphosis of matter is seen as a connector. 

The sea is a space where specific points, at specific coordinates in four dimensions - latitude, longitude, depth and time - are associated with specific values. The sea is a space of places.
The work questions the freedom of movement, borders and devisions, as water ways play an important role on a global scale; and ocean governance has typically ignored these characteristics of the sea. Water flows freely, but is yet heavy influenced to multiple surrounding natural factors and at the same time shaping and being shaped by political descisions and acts of labour.
